    What a treat. It's Monday morning coffee time and there are so many PC threads to catch up on. It looks like it has been a busy weekend. I have my Marti & Me class this morning so I'll check them out this afternoon. I'm not 100% over my cold but I think I'm past the contagion point and I have to get out of the house plus I haven't sewn a stitch since a week ago and I'm in need of some sewing therapy and when it's with friends I see only once a month...a double dose of feeling good. See ya later.

    Enjoy your M+M today, GGal ... I too feel like I have turned the bend of this cold, though not feeling as though I am totally out of the woods, yet. I sure don't want a relapse!!

    Be sure to show us what you work on at today's class!

    I'm feelin' a bit better taday also. I slept late (Well I guess not late for me, LOL)I've started the laundry, & decided that I do like the bindin' on the potholder I did yesterday. I would sew then sit awhile, then sew a li'le more. Last night I thought the scrappy bindin' was too busy but taday, it looks OK. Yeah I did cut & sew another bindin' ta go onta it, but I'm happy w/the one that is on it now. I've been makin' potholders ta try a couple o' ideas for the PC swap.

    The last one is the one I'm workin' on. It now is blocked, has a half inch border, is quilted & bound. It is in the wash.

    It's made by Creative Grids, & It's a Square Up & Fussy Cut Ruler. I got it at my LQS. It shows me where my blocks aren't square. It can be hard ta use for the smaller squares but for the 8.5 blocks it is perfect! It has holes at the half inch corners ta mark for cuttin' but it is hard ta git anything sharp enough ta fit in those holes & when ya do they can break off in the holes. When it shows that my blocks arn't square I block 'em, or trim 'em w/another ruler.

    Glad you're feeling better and back to sewing Dublb. Love the potholders-nice & bright & cheery.

    I've got more picts o' the last hotpad.
    I wonder why they are in this box & I can't lable 'em?
    The third one & forth one were before I washed it, & the last 2 were after I washed it. The old washrags, that I used for battin', still shrunk a li'le bit. It happens everytime, & makes it have that crinkled look.

    Bev--your great potholders giveme an idea for a stocking stuffer for kids. I always put some silly mass produced item in their stockings--pot holders may be the ticket for 2012.

    Great FMQ, DublB ... did you do totally FM? or via your plastic wrap method? or draw it on the fabric?


    Mug Rugs could work too, Ladies for the mass produced Christmas gifts ... recipients could choose whether they use it as a pot holder or a Mug Rug.

    However, I somewhat suspect OKSGlad's would never be mass produced, but with inclusions that would be unique to the recipient!

    QuiltE...I didn't have a M&M show and tell yesterday but I did show off pictures of my PC quilt. This month we will be making something with flying geese. Then I did stay for my BOM club and put together a block. Next month will be the last class. This is the first time I've ever used the suggested fabric so it's a little out of my usual color choices but it's going to be very nice. Then my LQS has a project supporting cancer research this month. I didn't sew a wall hanging for it but they also have a challenge of donating $1 for every yard of fabric they sell. I got the yardages etc. for the next M&M BOM and spent an hour or so selecting fabric for it. I went to the new KT line which is also not necessarily my first color choices but wanted to see how I might like a quilt with darker colors. I only had to add a couple of light fabrics so there would be good contrasts. I'll post a picture tomorrow. BTW...this BOM is also called Jamestown. Quite different than yours, Mirabelle. I also did a test drive on the Janome 7700. My instructor is selling hers and is getting the new 8900 that just came out. I like the accufeed system and it's a very good price for a machine that I know is well taken care of but cooler minds are thinking this morning and I know it's not for me at this time.

    Lots of stuff going on here...love it...Dublb, I love the Potholders...I made several from the first quilt-Along and I do use them....Hot pads are a great idea too....I got called into work yesterday and brought my stamps with me to sew...Didn't have much time to choose what to bring...I sewed stamps whenever I could inbetween customers...Almost had a whoopdeedoo with a lady that wanted to return a sewing machine for the second time..didn't know how to put the bobbin in the case the first time..didn't know to put the bobbin winder in correct position the second time...hummmm...her sewing teacher of 25 yrs couldn't figure it out either....She threatened me & the Joann's manager with if she had to come back again it would be with someone who isn't so nice....What a day!!!! hope to get some quiet time & PC sewing done today...

    GGal ... I hadn't heard there was a new 8900 on the market! What are you sewing with now? Don't let your rational self get too much in the way of what might be a good step for you. I really like my 6600 and am sure you would love the 7700 ... and knowing its history would be reassuring.

    Honchey ... Oh goodness! I'm sure you were so PC with that woman ... I'm not sure I would have been! You mentioned Joann's ... is the store you work for, set up within JOann's. Would be nice to have a job that you can "play" at!

    GG - What a great chance ta buy a used machine from someone that ya know the history. I'm inclined ta tell ya ta git it but only you know if it's right for you.
    QE - My quiltin' was free in that I didn't draw anything, but I used a walkin' foot & did just gentle curves then pivoted on the needle. Quiltin' this way is OK for QAYG or Hotpads but could be a big problem if ya had ta turn a large quilt at every point. LOL
    Honchey - What a hard time ya are havin' with that lady.Tell her ta come back w/ the sewin' instructor. Maybe someone who listens will be able ta run the machine. {Huggs}


    I'm so glad that we all can share ideas & each o' us can use 'em in our own way. I love the idea o' makin' small potholders or hotpads for Christmas.
